G4S - AGM 16 May 2019

Item 2: Approve the Remuneration Report

The remuneration structure is more heavily weighted to long-term performance.  The executives requested to waive their bonus for the year given the failure to meet financial targets, even though personal performance would have entitled them to a partial payout.  The quantum for the year was moderate and incentive pay is not excessive by UK standards.  We recommend shareholders approve.
